As impacted by the competition, demographic shifts, technological disruption and social evolution, the 5 trillion us dollar education industry continues to undergo massive change. With the perspective of an executive search consultant to the sector, Dr Rohan Carr from IRC Australia has mentioned 3 key trends:
- The increasing complexity and relentless competitiveness of the sector. This is driving a growing demand for high-profile research intensive academics. Wherever they might be with complexity also comes the need to attract individuals with proven resource management, industry engagement and people leadership skills. Resilient academics who will lead through massive change.
- The 2nd trend is driven by both the growth of the privately funded education sector with its tendency to be more geographically diverse and the new cross-border models of education partnership. The results are designed for individuals who can adapt to and work across culture. While education and research has always been international, it is now truly global. Those who can succeed are those who can successfully engage across and between cultures
- Finally, while all industries are impacted by the high level of global and uncertainty, the multi-stakeholder nature of education amplifies this. Uncertain time leads to a more conservative approach to changing employers or relocating across the world. Convincing successful educators and researchers to move is becoming harder regardless of the attractiveness of the institution. Within this context the inside group specialist education practice is well matched to the challenges and the opportunities of the sector.
